Instilling Confidence and Assurance
In Everything We Build
We understand that wine needs to be preserved and aged correctly. Climate controlled systems regulate temperature and humidity levels, protecting and slowing the aging process. The three elements that will damage your collection are light, heat, and vibrations. Our turnkey construction gives you peace of mind, knowing that your wine cellar is created with every detail in mind.
Many variables are taken into account during this assessment to determine the proper choice for a climate-controlled cellar. There are three types of climate controlled systems: through-the-wall, split, and ducted systems. An extensive, on-site evaluation allows us to assess your needs fully.
Wine cellars no longer need to be confined to basements. They can be incorporated into many spaces throughout the home, including the kitchen, dining room, hallways, under stairwells, and more.
When we design your wine cellar, you can have confidence that it is going to be built right.
Before and After Examples
Did You Know...
- Did you know that bottle capacity is determined not only by size of room but size and type of wine racking chosen?
- Did you know that the cost of a wine cellar can vary quite a bit?
- Did you know only about half of the wine cellars we create are in basements?
- Did you know there is more than one way to control the climate of your cellar?
- Did you know that there are three types of climate control systems?
If a homeowner wants to maximize bottle capacity, then components that allow bulk storage is the best direction. If the cellar is more for entertaining and visual effect, and bottle capacity is not as big of an issue, then different components are used to showcase the wine. Or if they are looking at slowly growing their wine collection, we have specific components that will expand as their collections grow.
This cost depends on the type of materials used or chosen for the build-out, the amount and quality level of wine racking, and whether or not a climate control system is needed. Cellars South offers a free consultation and a design quote to assess what would best suit a client’s needs.
More and more people are choosing to use them as a visual showpiece in their homes by adding glass doors, windows, or frameless glass across the front. They make a stunning presentation in dining rooms, kitchens, hallways, or anywhere else in a residential or commercial space.
A climate controlled cellar, when properly built, will maintain an appropriate storage temperature and a consistent humidity level ensuring the best conditions for your wine collection. A passive controlled cellar depends on room temperatures instead of climate control systems.
There are three types: ducted, split, or through-the-wall. Many variables come into play for the kind of system that would best fit the proposed wine cellar. How has the space been built out? Where in home or business will it be located? Are there concrete walls? What are the areas around the cellar? If so, are they conditioned or unconditioned spaces? Is there a mechanical room or storage room next to the cellar that can be easily accessed? Does this room have a drain? Will there be any glass doors or windows? Is it a space planned for a lot of entertaining or just occasional use? These are just some of the questions that would need to be answered.
If we are not doing the build-out, then we work with the builder and homeowner by reviewing the house plans and usually making a site visit for proper assessment before recommending the system that will best fit their wine cellar.
